From the GOTHTRONIC Review:

The Amalekites are traditional enemies of the Jewish people as they attacked the Jews when Moses was leading them out of Egypt. Since then Amalek is a symbol for enemy ground and every Jewish generation will have their war with an "Amalek" which now is the Palestine people. With a title such as Born to Destroy Amalek and the quotes printed on the sleeve, we may deal with a militant Zionist. Such radical issues always scare me a bit, for artists often have great influence on people's thoughts. On the other hand we are dealing here with a power electronics act, a genre famous for their provocative attitudes and subjects, so I won't take it all too seriously and just enjoy the music for what it is. And I can assure you, Barzel brings awesome raw noise, an album filled with the finest power electronics from abrasive noise to tense throbbing fearful atmospheres you can easily compare with acts such as Slogun and Genocide Organ.

After a small introduction Barzel takes you 'Through Clouds of Fire' with an intense raw metallic rumble and a throbbing sound. A distant roar like explosions in the sky. Feel the heat in a dense claustrophobic atmosphere as if you can hardly breathe. An atmosphere like after a bomber raid. With these uneasy atmospheres Born to Destroy Amalek continues. 'Lone Wolves of Zion' is a track tightening up the nerves with a disturbing compressed pulse and aggressive distorted vocals. The composition is minimal but has great impact. Smashed against a concrete wall of white noise Barzel screams aggressively 'Born to Destroy Amalek' filled with high pitches feedback. This is really powerful stuff we are dealing with, highly explosive abrasive noise.

'Two Eyes for an Eye, Teeth for a Tooth' sounds hypnotically together with another loop about the reach of a M16 in 'Ha' Shomer (the Guard)'. At the background a dark drone. This is a dark absorbing piece a little in the vein of 'A Peculiar Crusade' by Genocide Organ. Also 'We Shall Wash Our Hands in the Blood of the Wicked' sounds this way; no harsh noise here, but tracks leaving you uncomfortable by the intensity of the dark oppressing atmosphere. Loops about revenge and another disturbing loop with singing children.

That even distortions can swing is proved in 'New Sicarii'. Guttural drones and violent noise. Barzel can compete with other American noise acts such as Fire in the Head with pulverizing grinding noises and deep pulsing rhythm dragging you through littered fields of scattered glass. Powerful and dirty, Barzel leaves you on your bleeding knees. An avalanche of distortion and an army of revenge in 'One Truth, Not Two' take you away with violent noise for the last time to end this powerful Zionist journey with 'We Shall Wash Our Hands in the Blood of the Wicked'.

Born to Destroy Amalek is a strong powerful noise release with a lot of variation and repressed emotions. Barzel know how to dose the power and the noise and create space for deeper more subliminal feeling in the structures. Sometimes it will blow you away, but mostly Barzel know how to keep you at the throat with strong pulsing sound structures and a lot of tense breeding from inside that grows stronger, but keeps up at the moment of explosion. This release is recommended to those who like the other bands mentioned.
